I should probably, like, update, and stuff

So, let's see. There hasn't really been much going on as of late. Work continues to go well. Today was the first day I've had to call in to the new place (and probably the last, if I can help it - I can't afford to have unpaid days very often). Honestly, my headaches have been MUCH better than they were at B-Line, so I think we can safely say that at least part of it was stress from the workplace. Thinking about it now, today's headache wasn't even one of the epic ones - it probably felt worse than it was because it's been awhile since I've had even a twinge. (For those of you who just recently friended me through bluesgirly, sadly, I talk entirely too much about my Headaches of Doom (HoD) in this journal. Sorry.)

Still, it was kind of nice to have a day off. I slept in (until the UPS dude woke me up by pounding on the door, and managed to slap the sticker on the door, get down the stairs, into his truck, and out of the parking lot by the time I got my pants on and to the door. I didn't know UPS hired ninja!), and played some more Fable 2. And when I say "some", I mean "entirely too much". I'm enjoying the second game even more than I did the original. Sadly, our 360 has a nasty tendancy of freezing up, so we're going to have to send it in to get fixed. I'm trying to get through as much of the storyline as I can before we send it out, of course, but I don't know if I'll be able to get enough of my fix to last me however long it takes. Le sigh.

I've been trying to give my life a bit of a makeover - not trying to change the basics, just trying to improve the overall quality. Eric (with Gahan's invaluable help) definitely helped with that last weekend (weekend before? It's starting to blend together...) while I was at my mom's. There's a large clear patch in the living room, and most everything else is either in/on the shelving in there, or stacked neatly near the shelves. Well, stacked neatly until Ramses and Feina decide the Kitty 500 needs to go through there. The big patch leads me to step two of the plan, which is getting between 15 and 20 Wii Fit credits at least four days a week. In order to do it consistently, it means getting up ri-damn-diculously early in the morning. It's been about three weeks, and while my weight doesn't really reflect much difference, I've been feeling better in general. Maybe that's part of why the headaches have subsided? I dunno. We'll see how long I can keep it up. I remember reading something about how an activity becomes a habit after...I think it was two months? of consistently doing that activity. It's considered a habit if it's more difficult for a person to convince his/herself not to do an activity than it is to do it. We shall see.

I'm actually not sure if I'm doing NaNo this year. I've tried for the last...6 years, I think? Haven't won a single time. I got the germ of an idea, but I don't know if there's enough there to flesh it out. Plus, I have quite a few cross-stitch projects for Christmas to finish, so that may take priority. Plus, I'm just not feeling the NaNo excitement this year - maybe not winning for so long has finally dampened my enthusiasm.

Wow, this got long and meandering. Sorry! I should probably get to sleep, anyway - the head, she is still not so good. I'll see if I can work some extra hours tomorrow and Friday, make up some of the time from today. We shall see.

G'night!

You know, I clean/organize things for baked goods. Or chocolate. If you want more clear patches.

(No one ever thinks I am serious about this, but I SWEAR TO GOD I am. Damnit. I *LIKE* cleaning things!)
